A severe  thunderstorm passed  over the  m  area   during   the  evening  of  (Lditoriaid  implication of Co-operation  In a human being, there is an excellent example of the application of the principle- Co-operation between the mind and the  muscles is the easiest one to see. The mind suggests that a nail  driven just here would be a handy thing to hang a handsa.w on.  The hands, directed by a multitude of nerves and muscles, working intricately and accurately together, pick up the hammer and  reach for the nail. The mind may reject the first nail, aiid the  hand goes after another more suited to the nieeds of the job. The  two hands^ then with the eyes and the mind, do the physical  business of hammering the nail. None could adequately do this  simple thing without the willing co-operation of the others.  Another, but not so obvious, exa'mple is that of breathing,  this simple and familiar action that keeps one alive is a perfect  type of co-operation. ���  Before actual arrival into this old world of ours, the infant  does not breathe with its own lungs- That part of its brain has  n-ever sent the message to the muscles to 'take a deep breath of  That'. But,immediately atfter birth,.and from then on, the child  must breathe for survival- That tiny brain section sends out its  messages along the net-work of its telephone-nerves, the little  chest expands, and the lusty if somewhat, shaky,, little wail announces this first accomplishment. From that moment on, to  speak without technicalities, the automatic co-operation of these  members makes breathing an a'ccmplishmewt of which we are  most of the time quite unconscious-  To go just a little further with this illustration, let us consider what happens when- the conscious mind enters the picture,  or when the rest of the body makes greater demands upon this  aerating system.  Suppose the mind sends word that here is a match to be extinguished. Almost  without  a< person's  eoiisciuos realization,  the  chest expands quickly, then forcefully contracts, the mouth meantime, open but rounded, dire'cts the stream of air against the  flame and the match is out. -     * ���" ' '  At times, the body, because of great physical activity such  as running, working, or climbing, needs more oxygen. It calls  out along the nerve-telephone for more- The brain* senjds back  a eall for faster, greater action from the breathing muscles. They  act. the hmgs absorb the air in greater more frequent gulps, and  the oxygen has arrived. Co-operative action has provided what  was necessary.  November 13, and from which  a good deal of hail fell- Normally . T h u n der   during   the  winter   months  is   uncommon,  but has occurred a nximber of  times in previous years. Heavy ,  frosts  and  cold  temperatures/  dominated  the  latter  part  of  the month from the 21, to 29-  Increasing cloud and southeast winds finally brought rain  to the area on November 30,  after a. dry spell of 10 days-  Greatest rain in one day occurred   oh   November   30,   when  64/11)0 inches fell.  In, comparison,, Vancouver  City had 2-34 inches of rain, 10  days with rain/, and 11 days  with fog. The City also recorded the driest fall (Sept. Oct-  Nov.) since records begam back  in 1898- Sunshine was normal  with 52.3 hours-  Childrens' Pets  CUSTAUD  CREAM  P.F.

The scrap-book and one shipment of toys have gone forward  to the Junor Red Cross in, Vancouver for distribution and  aniother box of toys 'and clothing have been sent to the  Pemberton Indian School to  be  distributed  there.

They are very. colorful amd  look quite happy.  Pets may sometimes be'eotiu  sidered a nuisance by grownups who/.uofteni have to be  resp^siblejl^ seeing they are  properly :.;&|rec��;' for by their  young ownersj?; Then, strange  to say, the growair-ups soon  become as fond of them as the  children are*,- and would just  a's soon? take ??full. charge.

After a trip down over our  glorious highway, (which is  now a sea of mud), I was in a.  mood to find pleasure in anything! ���   "*  The first difficulty I found  was watching the two. games at  once- (They say experts at this  move their eyeball in different  directions at the same time iai  order to get the full benefit of  these tournaments)..  The   idea   of   the   game,   it  seems, is to launch a bird-like  object into the air and then try  desperately to bring it back to  the   ground   again   by   going  through   all   sorts   of   gestula-  lions   and   waving   a   strange  frying-pan-shaped   bat.   There  must  be holes  in  tfliese  bats,  (which   I   later   learned   are  called 'rackets' or something),  because,  after  miss in.g  the  "bird",    the    player    usually  looked very accusingly at his  bat.  I never discovered what  the fish net strung across the.  . floor was for  unless it was to  keep    the,   antagonists    from  attacking each other!  The players themselves, (I  use the term loosely), seemed  vague as. to what they were  doing but: the women, who were  ������'d re s sed rather scantily in  shirts aiid shorts, (more entertainment), found the whole  situation vSy hilarious.  The only time e v er yon, e  seemed completely at ease, was  when! theZ:$ood was served ���  nobody was vague, sihy, or  backward then, even I knew  what to do?!';  CoiirifCil Briefs  ,   ..    * - *  * ��� * ��� ������i*"  by George Williamson  At the Student Council meeting it Ayas:r decided that there  won't be ajny: milk sold in the  school.
